You might think you need to be a master programmer to start your own company.But that’s not actually the case, says entrepreneur David Rose on Quora. In fact, the single most important person at a startup is “the entrepreneur:” basically the guy that gets the startup off the ground.

The entrepreneur isn’t necessarily a technical master, but has a “combination of vision, passion, leadership, commitment, communication skills, hypomania, fundability, and, above all, willingness to take risks, thatĀ brings together all of the pieces and creates from them an enterprise that fills a value-producing role in our economy,” Rose says.

So, even if you aren’t a master coder, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to start a company.
